Manifesto for Homes

Homelessness: Far from fixed

We have all likely either seen the impact of or been directly affected by Scotland’s housing crisis. Homelessness can happen to anyone in Scotland and all too often it is chance, not choice, that leads to someone losing their home.

We help over a million people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness - and we campaign to prevent it in the first place. You can be part of that change.

Five reasons to be a campaigner

  • We are in a Housing Crisis
  • Every 18 minutes a household in Scotland is assessed as homeless
  • The average house price in Scotland rose by 75% since 2003
  • The private rented sector has doubled in size in the past 10 years
  • We believe the housing safety net in the UK is vital
